Internet of Things

Internet of Things (IoT) is the most frequently used subject concerning such new-age technologies as Smart City or Smart Home. Solutions based on IoT become today’s standard for telecom, car or telemetry industries. The largest companies introduce their new services thanks to IoT solutions.
Understanding of the operation idea, requirements, standards and current available and used technologies will lead to the effective and accurate decisions affecting enterprise products and services.

Target audience

The course is intended for less experienced engineers in telecom and also non-technical staff, who would like to learn about technologies and solutions appearing currently on the market, and about the further paths of development. It will also fit more experienced technical staff as there are some technological aspects in the agenda, such as NB-IoT air interface.
